"Do what you love"
You could call this "my philosophy" or "my vision."
The love for creating things, designing and working with great people is what drives me to keep pursuing my dream job: Elegant Designs.
I'm often asked how I stay focused each day working for myself, and it's easy to answer. Do what you love.
Graphic design comes naturally for me. And with the flexibility to work when I'm feeling inspired for a project – either 10:00 pm, 4:00 am or 2:00 pm – I'm always close to work. It's become part of my day, like emptying the dishwasher. Although I do not LOVE emptying the dishwasher. ha!
Meet the "Team"
Here's where I should really upload pictures of all my clients. Over the last 20 plus years, I've learned that it's not myself that made Elegant Designs into the graphic design studio it is today – It's my clients that make me a success.
My day-to-day work is truly a team effort and I'm grateful all of them.
Owner & Graphic Designer
I've been in Bismarck since 1992, so it feels like home. I started Elegant Designs in 1997 in a corner of my living room and have enjoyed it every day since. Not many people can say they "love their job," and actually mean it, every day. Specializing in printed projects for over 20 years.
Recently adding to my job description: Blogger. In October 2016, I've created a DIY blog specializing in original design files you can use on your Cricut® or other cutting machine for personal use. The idea sparked from regularly saying to my creative friends, We Can Make That! I invite you to check it out and see all my creative outlets from paper crafting to redoing furniture: We Can Make That!
